Wedding: James & Joyce

I usually tell clients that during the wedding day, the majority of the photographs that I take are unposed and candid.  The posed photographs normally come in the form of a few photographs I get of the couple when I can pull them aside for a while during quieter moments or formal family portraits during the course of the wedding day.  For a change, I decided to post a posed photograph instead of the unposed photographs that I normally post on my blog.

James and Joyce had a beautiful, elegant and simple wedding at the historic Raffles Hotel last month.  Earlier in the day before the wedding ceremony started, they wanted some photographs of themselves around the hotel premises and the following photograph was my favorite.  I love the vertical lines running through the whole image from the couple themselves to the pillars moving off into the distance behind them.  The pillars and the lamps hanging from the ceiling also nicely lead the viewer’s eyes from the couple in the foreground to the white iron gate in the background, making the whole image more dynamic.
